Guitars – Dale Henshaw

Formed in 2020, Tooth & Dagger originally consisted of guitarist Iain & drummer Chris. Seeking a heavier sound than in their previous project, they linked-up with Dante, a versatile and mercurial vocalist, Lucinda, a multi-talented bassist/singer and shredder extraordinare Dale ‘The Snail’ Henshaw. 

The trademark Tooth & Dagger sound is a potent cocktail of brutality and beauty. Thundering, grooving drums; colossal, melodic guitars, and gut-punching bass lay the perfect foundation for vivid lyrics delivered in a mesmerising variety of vocal styles. A Tooth & Dagger song simultaneously catches you with an irresistible hook of melody before bludgeoning you with an iron hammer of rhythm and noise.

With live music restricted in the UK throughout much of 2021, the band used the time instead to develop their unique sound. Under the mentorship of Jonn Penney (Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Spairs), the band finished off the year by recording their debut EP ‘The Embers EP’ with experienced producer Simon Henley.

Tooth & Dagger kicked off their UK shows in 2022 by headlining a sold-out Loud and Live presents… at the prestigious Mitre Inn, which the band live-streamed for free to their growing global audience, including fan bases in Norway, the USA and Japan. The band have continued to perform throughout the year while working with Elliot Prudence to finish production on the EP and making the video for second single ‘Sinking Feelings’
